The subject here is 'clauses'. So the verb takes a plural form 'lie'. A, B and C can be eliminated.

Between D and E, that again refers to clauses and hence plural form 'make' is required.

Hi,
The Q tests us on following aspects:-
1) VERB:-
the object is CLAUSES and both the VERBS refer to it..
So lie and make should be PLURAL...
A,B and C are out for singular 'lies'..
D is out for singular 'makes'..
2) That/Which..
here the 'result from civil unrest.' is an essential phrase so 'THAT' is required..
B and D are Out..

Only E is left

Hi Chetan2U,

I guess the subject is fine print , which is singular so it should take the singular verb Lie. (Note Lies is the plural form of lie)
and then in the second clause the "that" refers to clauses and it should take the plural verb make.
Thus, we are left with only option E.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

we have option C also where "clause" is present.
Since "Clause" is in underlined portion of the sentence. It can be both(single or multiple)
I mean what if there was a single clause that makes us liable for any expenses that result from civil unrest.
How can we be sure that there were more than one "clause"?
